1. Strengths

  • Provides Permanent Protection
  • Very easy to play
  • Good CC  & Utility

2. Weaknesses

  • Outdated build
  • Poor personal dps

3. Current Viability

This Build is extremely beginner friendly and easy to play. Unfortunately it hasn’t been buffed in a while which makes this build sub optimal everywhere.

It is still strong enough to kill raid bosses but there is a better choice everywhere. We recommend using this build only to groups which just started raiding since Hammer Guardian brings a lot of CC and can provide permanent protection and minor heals.
